HCT GROUP LEARNING CENTRE
HCT Group is an award-winning social enterprise in the transport industry, safely providing over 30 million passenger trips on our buses every year. We deliver a diversity of services – from London red buses to social services transport, from school transport to whole bus networks to community transport. Our social mission is to enhance people’s lives, provide opportunities and bring people and communities together through transport and training. We believe that transport can help to bring down the barriers faced by the most vulnerable in our society, making a real difference. It is the means by which the most marginalised can access jobs, education, healthcare – or even the simple freedom of getting out and about, so central to our quality of life. To pursue our social mission, we reinvest the profits from our commercial work into high social impact transport services or projects in the communities we serve. We also seek out whatever occasions we can to make our trade work more impactful – running public transport for the public benefit not private profit, supplying occasions for people who are long term unemployed and concentrating our growth in areas of high economic deprivation.
What we do – transforming transport
Whatever service we deliver – from the simplest bus contract to the most innovative social programme, our aim is to deliver on our social mission, transforming transport. Our services fall into three broad categories:
Transforming life alters: We are at the forefront of making expert transport better, supplying contract services that bring down barriers – from to Dial-a-Ride services that tackle loneliness and isolation to community buses enabling access to services.
Transforming public transport: Transforming public transport: From a multi-award winning bus network in Jersey, to a matchless arrangement with a trade operator in Bristol, we are innovating in the delivery of public transport contracts.
Transforming communities: Whether self-financed from contract profits, delivered in partnership with local authorities or grant funded, we are delivering high social effect community transport – minibuses for groups, community buses and more.
